We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip and were quite satisfied. The room was spotless, the staff very friendly and helpful and the proximity to the airport was terrific. The tasty (and included) breakfasts, with made to order eggs, smoothies and more, were another plus. We were just a block or two from Alajeuela's beautiful city park, cathedral and indoor public market. Night manager Mauricio was especially helpful lining up a rather complicated car rental for us in advance of our arrival. It worked out perfectly. We also appreciated the free taxi to the airport at the end of our trip, which is offered to all guests. We'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed two nights after our flight into San Jose. The hotel is well situated for the amenities of Alajuela including restaurants and cashpoints. We had a room with shared bathroom - the facilities were clean but basic. On our first morning the shower had no hot water and the cold tap was broken, however after reporting this the problem was resolved. There was a pleasant courtyard at the back of the property where breakfast was served but in the evening guests brought in beers or takeaway dinner to have there. Breakfast options included fruit with granola & yoghurt, and eggs with toast.

Possibly the best part of our stay was the guide they organised for us to visit Volcan Poas, coffee plantation (part of the Doka estate) and views of the La Paz and San Fernando waterfalls. Ricardo was extremely knowledgable about the volcano, coffee production process and bird species that could be seen from the waterfall lookout. He also made sure to advise about the weather at Poas so we didn’t waste money on tickets just to see cloud cover. Much better value than the bigger tours, and timed to avoid the clouds & crowds. Highly recommended.

Ricardo is wonderful. He really knows his stuff. We have so many wonderful things to do around Alajuela... which makes our location an ideal place for a couple days.

We are attentive to our guests when issues arise. We strive to make them our priority. We apologize for the issue and are glad we were able to resolve it quickly.

The Comfort Rooms are our most cost effective option with the shared bath making them our most basic accommodations. We have many room classes in order to accommodate many travelers needs and budget. Even rooms with A/C!

This was our first stop on arrival at SJO and last stop before heading home. We stayed in the "Superior" room which was clean and comfortable with our own bathroom, and in a quiet and safe back hall of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is AMAZING and you sit in a pleasant outdoor courtyard! During our short stays, we wandered the busy city streets - very interesting to see for a short time. The price was definitely budget friendly. It was only 10 minutes from the airport and the hotel offers a complimentary taxi coupon to the airport when you leave. This hotel has a Costa Rican feel to it. It's a beautifully converted old home in the middle of the city, a lovely change from big corporate hotels. We were very pleased overall with our stay here and recommend this to any budget traveller. Our only suggestions are perhaps blackout curtains be added as we felt the room could have been darker for sleeping, and a safe in the room is an important anywhere. (There is no room safe.)

Room tip: Superior rooms are quiet and comfortable.

We are so grateful you enjoyed your stay with us. We really make an effort to make sure our guests feel welcome.

We have been doing a lot of updating and renovations. Maybe on your next stay they will be done and you can stay longer. We can help plan area tours and excursions. There is a lot to do in our little city and surrounding area.
